When I wrote the story of what I went through with Cancer I did'nt have a pic to add to it. But thanks to my cousin Carmen for scanning a pic for me and emailing it to me, I now have one. I warn you I am not a pretty sight. I was swollen and so discolored. I looked like I was beat up. The swelling is'nt even half of what it was the couple month's after surgery. This pic was taken in Sept 2005, on Rebecca's 4th birthday. My hair was almost gone then. I felt like crap that day and could'nt enjoy a piece of cake, but I did put the candles on it for her. Chemo had a nasty side effect, one I hated. I would swell, hands and legs terribly. Maybe it was all that saline solution I got all the time, lol. I can't use salt, it does make me swell up. Anyways here I am. Do you see why I said I felt like a freak? Cause I really did feel like one.
Awful looking huh? I hope I never have to go through that again. It was the worst 2 years of my life.
